    Caption on image: Photo of Bothell Road, taken May 8, 1912, W & S, Seattle, Wn.On verso of image: Number 4. ""Warrenite"" laid in Fall of 1911 for King County under supervision of County Engineer Morrison. The figures shown in this photograph, which was taken May 8, 1912, were made in the soft, mushy surface of the Bothel Road, with a common stick. Both above and below the figures ""1912"" can be distinctly seen the imprints of horses' hoofs as they have clung to the pavement in passing over it. On the right of the photo will be noticed spongy, sticky, creeping mass of ""Warrenite"" on its way to the edge of the road, leaving the center of the road nothing but bare stone, which does not make a good wearing surface. This road cost King County taxpayers $17,000.00 per mile. less
